Here's a proof-of-concept that React Native can work* (*lol) under Marzipan.
But, like, it's proof that we don't need Electron, right?
Check out biscuitehh/MarzipanPlatter for a nice guide on getting Marzipan running.
✨Reasonably Good ✨
It's surprising how well it's working. Besides the obvious mobile-specific things, it's running abouuuut as well as tvOS builds of React Native.
I wouldn't recommend using it. Ever. C'mon now.
How It Looks
I have some screenshots* of the RNTester sample application from React Native.
(*photos, lols. My UI server dies hard the second my Touchbar becomes active, which my screenshot shortcut does. Ehhh)
I've committed everything. EVERYTHING.
node_modules, especially, because that's where the bulk of the changes were.
How to run
- Follow all the MarzipanPlatter instructions first
nodeif you don't have it yet (
brew install node)
- Open the Xcode project, run the
MarzipantsMacSwifttarget, and you too have an unstable UI server and a poorly rendered app!
- If the app fails to compile, try building the ReactMac scheme first, and only then MarzipantsMacSwift
- Instead of running from Xcode directly, you can build the app from Xcode, and then:
- Run react-native server:
npm install -g react-native; react-native start
- Find in Xcode the built app (in Products group, find MarzipantsMacSwift.app -> Open in Finder), copy path to it
- Run the built app via CLI:
CFMZEnabled=1 open path-to-the-MarzipantsMacSwift.app
- If you open some screen you shouldn't have and you keep getting the red screen at launch, delete
